There's no trace of this song on the US copyright database. It's a stolen demo that some chancer is making money off of. It's pretty obvious.

I know this is not official, but lets make this #1. Let Madonna know how much we miss new music from her.

That's crazy. I mean its on iTunes with her name as the copywriter. How many checks do a fan base need to do before buying a song?

Is Madonna's team even out of bed yet?

Her management still have not said anything.  Such a farce. What are they doing ? 

Her friend O'Seary has done nothing despite being tweeted like spam.

I thought it would be some amateur bootleg remix when people were talking about it yesterday. I didn't realise it was already out and was just a direct lift of the leaked demo. This Guido nobody is probably the person who uploaded it and is making money from it.

What are the legalities though? Do they need to prove that they have ownership before iTunes will take it down? How do you prove you own a stolen song? And why is iTunes STILL full of the Dallas/Fukuoka/London concerts featuring her songs? There's some legal loophole going on somewhere I think.

The digital era is a bit of a mess for this kind of stuff.

To give you an example, many currently out of print albums by 80s / 90s Venezuelan pop acts have been uploaded to all digital platforms by a "label" called Mundo Digital USA. Many times it's just YouTube rips sourced from vinyl, others use altered tracklistings and artwork, incorrect titles, I guess this is all because the "label"  probably doesn't even have the album and has to take what's available online and try to pass it off as a legitimate release. Sometimes they would use the cover of an album but fill up the tracklist with songs from other albums, even from different eras where the artist was signed to a different label. Mess.

And I've spoken to some of the artists and they say they can't do anything because the label that released them back in the day owns the recordings so the artist cannot make them available officially yet the same label doesn't care enough to upload them themselves or do anything regarding the unofficial releases clogging up the digital services. Rings a bell?

She doesn't have a team anymore.

There's probably nothing anyone can do about it if it's not infringing on any copyright.

If it was losing THEM money they might act. That it loses her fans money? well they couldn't care less.

It took them almost a week to take down the Girlie Show Fukuoka bootleg a few months ago...

Amazon is full of them, all from different 'record companies', some of them sold direct from Amazon. Back in the day you had to go to record fairs to find elusive and good quality bootlegs. Nowadays anyone with a CD burner can have a nice little sideline. It's shocking how inept they are at stopping it.

Bitch I'm SCREAMING.

1. Her fans are actually buying it and made it on iTunes Top 100 everywhere.

2. The Rebel Heart era remains MESSY as fuck after TWO years.

3. The ugly artwork won't make you question the legitimacy of this release because her official single covers are just as bad.

4. This has been sitting on iTunes for DAYS and her team (if existent) is still unaware of it.
